Help: VCR Recordings from TIVO are "Squeezed", Too Narrow

I have the HR10-250, and lately when I try to record a videotape from a TIVO'd movie (4:3 non-widescreen), using as I must the 480i format, the recording comes out about 4.5:3....too narrow, people too tall. Picture quality is otherwise excellent, but of course unwatchable. Please respond here or to [email protected]. Thanks to all.

Many questions: If you have a HR10-250, I would assume you have a HDTV? Is that where you're watching these discs? Have you cycled through the stretch modes on your TV? Were the recordings from a OTA channel?
